1924 Buffalo Nickel on a Cent Planchet
MS67 Red and Brown
A Two-Owner Coin

1924 5C Buffalo Nickel -- Struck on a Cent Planchet -- MS67 Red and Brown NGC. Appendix B of the Judd pattern reference lists a number of mint errors, such as this 1924 Buffalo nickel that was struck on a cent planchet. Any Buffalo nickel on a cent planchet is extremely rare. Prior to the appearance of this Superb Gem from the Newman Collection, the finest we have handled was an example certified MS64 Brown that realized $11,500 in September 2008. This is the third example in our sales.

This sensational piece is very nicely centered with all details on the planchet, save for the extreme outer curve of the bison's tail. The strike is bold as it should be when a copper planchet is struck by a press intended to strike the harder nickel alloy. Both sides exhibit satin luster and retain about half of the original orange mint color, blended with sky-blue toning.

Colonel E.H.R. Green passed away in 1936, just 12 years after this piece was minted. From Green to Newman, and now to a new collector who will be just the third owner for this coin since it was minted in 1924.
Provenance. "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
From The Eric P. Newman Collection.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 22RX, PCGS# 3951)
